Hi folks, hope you’re all hanging in there and gearing up for another week of quarantine. I’m having a pretty good day thus far, and I had a lovely birthday yesterday as well. I’ve already had my only online class today, so now I’m going to designate the rest of my day to get homework done, write content, job hunt, continue packing, and then probably just watch movies. I also need to call the electric company and arrange for our power to be set up in preparation for moving in a couple of weeks, so I guess you could say adulting is going strong.
Now that I’m into the groove of online work and feeling much more motivated and upbeat than I was in the last couple of weeks, I don’t really have too much to update you all on! My life for the next couple of weeks is mostly just going to consist of homework, blogging, hanging out with my mom, and hopefully seeing my boyfriend soon. I’m also going to start getting into the groove of junk journaling, because I’d really like to start some sort of an online shop to make extra money. More updates to come on that!

It’s about 7pm right now, and admittedly, I’ve had a pretty lazy day. I tend to be pretty easy on myself around the time of my period, because I can get really irritable and tired if not. Nonetheless, I’m in very good spirits, and I’m happy to be sitting down with my computer to get writing done.
Tuesday and Wednesday were perfectly lovely. Nathaniel drove up to see me on a whim, and we went for a drive along the coast of Massachusetts and New Hampshire. We also found a little quiet, desolate beach across from a shipyard, so we settled down there for an hour or so and skimmed stones in the water. Afterwards, we got some beach pizza (a favorite of his,) and watched There’s Something About Mary with my mom. So overall, it was a really wonderful couple of days, and I already miss him so much and can’t wait to see him again. I’m so fortunate to have him by my side, especially during these crazy times.
Anyway, I think I’m going to start re-watching Stranger Things tonight, have a margarita, and go to bed a bit earlier than usual. Like I said earlier, I’m feeling much more tired than usual, so I’m trying to be gentle with myself. I’m also going to be posting a guide to self-care and mental health awareness later this week, so keep your eyes out for that!

After my very relaxing ‘weekend’ day on a Thursday, I’m back to keeping up with my productivity. I’m currently having a salad and working on some marketing materials for my internship, which is especially pressing with the coronavirus. Right now I’m working on our social media posts, or resource lists, our response fund, etc. It’s interesting and eye opening to work for a non-profit during a pandemic.
I was feeling a bit antisocial yesterday, but tonight I’m looking forward to hanging out with my mom and watching YouTube videos on the TV together (we’ve been really into Jenna Marbles lately.) I’m really trying to appreciate these last few weeks with her, because we’re both moving away in May and I’m probably not going to get to see her as much as I’m used to! That being said, I’m really looking forward to her coming to visit me at my apartment in Boston, and I can’t wait to cook meals for her and show her around my place. It’s going to be so exciting!
